R0AN0KE, VA., MAY 26, 1S93. THE GOLl> SVRPLUS. It is worth while- from time to time to j make a note cf tbe ?1". .ct of the Sherman law of 1890 upon the Treasury receipts and tho various kinds of monry of which they are composed, says the Now York Times. In July. 15!?0, the last month beforo tho Treasury notes of lS'JO came into circulation, 03.1 per cent, of the receipts for customs in New York were gold coin or certificates, tho remaining fraction being silver certificates and United States notes or greenbacks. Two years later thero was less than 14 per cent, of gold, 16 per cent, of silver, 2S por cont. of greenbacks, and 4S per cent, of Treasury notes issued under the Sherman act. In April of this year the gold had fallen nearly to t percent., silver 23 per cent., greenbacks were 41 per cent., and Treasury notes were 'i'-i per cont. In other words, gold has practically disappeared, an,d nearly three-fourths of tho rccoipts arc in greenbacks, which are redeemable in gold, and Treasury notes, which are practically so re? deemable, while the remainder is rxade .ip of silver certificates. Tho return of the silver certificates simply adds to the standard dollars owned by the Gov eminent. They would not como in if thero were any use for them in the gen? eral circulation of the country. The Treasury notes of ir890 are in nearly tho same case. They also come into the Treasury only when there is an excess of there issued. What tho (Jov? ornmont is doing, therefore, is this: It is buying silver at the rate of some ?!?0,003,000 a year and Issuing notes for it payablo in goM, and tbeso note* are steadily flowing back in'.o the Treas? ury, whilo no gold is being got with which to redeem them. Whon this pro? cess began there was ?190,000,000 not gold in tho Troasury. When it had gouo on for one year ti.ere was only SI31,000,000 net gold in the Treasury. By another year this was reduced to 1? 110,000,000. To day there is los* than SIOO.OCO.OOO. Wheat Millers?^League, Toledo, Ohio, May 25.?

Grand Army Men Think n Bpllt may Be ?ult Over Farnham Poet. Milwaukee, Wis.. Maj 25.?Grand Army men are becoming very deeply interested in the case of Noah L. Farn ham Post of Now York city, and mem? bers of the order do not hoaitate to say that if Commander-in chief Woiesort's action is continued it will result in a split in the order. The Farnham l'oat passed resolutions favoring such pen? sion reform as would make tho Hat of pensioners a roll of honor and not a re fugo for diahonest pensioners. For this action the charter ot tho post was takon away by the department commander. This act was confirmed by Commander in chief Weissert in an order dated May 16, and not given to the pnblio until recently. In the absence of Col. Weissert, Adjt. Gen. Gray said yesterday in regard to the incident that it was only "a flurry" and would soon blow over. Farnham Poat, Gen. Gray said, was of very little importance and could not influence any? body. The poat waa never in sympathy with tho order on the pension question or anythinsr else, and the disbanding of it would do no harm. Other Grand Army men differ decid? edly with Gen Gray as to the effect of tho measures taken in regard to the New York post in order to frighten any other posts from opposing the so-'oalled pen? sion abuacs. Col. J. A. Watroua said of the revoca? tion of Franham Post's charter that it was baaed on a flimsy technicality, and that so far from stopping anybody's mouth would tend to intensify the feel? ing in favor of pension reform.
